A string of oneshots which bring to you the idea of hope. They are all have distinct plots but the final message is the same. The art is wonderful and very realistic. It kinda flows like BimboSilly said.
My personal favourite was "The Name Of Water". It had me grinning like a fool in the end.
People looking for some intelligent one shots will love this. Except for the last one. Its creepy.

I decided to re-read this collection of one-shots and I liked it much more the second time around. Except the sixth one-shot (which was mildly disturbing), I thoroughly enjoyed reading the collection.

Some of the them were sweet and all of them were thought-provoking, in a good way. All of the one-shots had a nice feel and like another commenter mentioned, they had an artsy feel. The art is also solid, which is always nice. I would recommend this if you're in the mood for some nice one-shots.

Some stories are just better than others. Some amuse you for a brief time, some you forget (heck, I can't remember half the stories in this collection), but every now and then you find one that sticks with you.

"Falling In Love With The Sky" is one of my all-time favorite one-shots and I have Okazaki Mari to thank for it. The art being gorgeous aside, there's a moment where everything just stops and your jaw drops and you realize how awesomely outside the box the mangaka thinks.

I make everyone who enjoys josei read it. I reread it often and continue to love it. It's a love story about not wanting what is meant to be, about resisting the way nature made you.

If you only read one story from this collection, read "Falling In Love With The Sky!"

This was a very nice collection. It wasn't your average shoujo "Oh I love him what to do!..." montony (if that is a word lol) these stories actually had some depth to them. Even Falling in Love With the Sky was vivid an original. I didn't read Wind Grass Child for some reason it didn't feel like the other stories and, in a way I think Strong was actually weak in its meaning. Overall my favorite is One Piece (One Dress). Definetly worth the read.

Artistic, poignant

I am surprised no one reviewed this before. Poignant is a good word for the stories but somehow, you wont feel extremely sad as all the stories deliver one common thing, hope.

The drawing and the poses of the characters are really artistic but if you dont have an eye for that, you might think its like very other Josei drawing. Also, there is something inherently endearing about the flow of thoughts and dialogue. Its more like art than actual story telling. There is a flow to the art style. If you feel like watching a skit or maybe a dramatic short, you could read this manga
